Today, One805 is a permanent 501(c)(3) corporation, raising funds for all three First Responder groups – Fire, Police, and Sheriff – purchasing equipment, supporting public safety & taking care of those who take care of us.

One805 supports our First responder community by helping provide these essential resources along with, PTSD counseling and public emergency preparedness.
Who We Are
Boring events are not our style! We raise the roof and kick it up a notch with great music, laid back dress-code and fabulous food. We have become known for throwing the most fun fundraisers in town, be it the famous “Kick Ash Bash” for 4,000 First Responders and 10 hours of music, or the more recent “One805 LIVE!” event with two Grammy Award winning hall of famers - Danny Seraphine of Chicago and Robbie Krieger of The Doors.
We keep good company! Our partners support us because they care about our First Responders
